Ariadne, a single, fortysomething writer embroiled in an affair with a married man, is writing a book about what it means to say, “I love you. ” To make ends meet while writing, she joins a research study in which she’s paid to live with an AI device, but the study quickly enters uncharted territory. Apostolides’ latest brings into question issues of privacy and consciousness: how we communicate our thoughts, what it means to embody our desires, and whether we ought to act on them.

"Marianne Apostolides’ latest book, I Can’t Get You Out of My Mind, interlaces an intellectually-engaging discourse on attachment and desire with an intimate picture of the primary character, Ariadne… The narrative is both agonizing and darkly humorous." —Canadian Literature

"What I Can’t Get You Out of My Mind does masterfully is examine love through the lens of Ariadne, poetically weaving in the philosophy and literary writings that inform her understanding of the world… the book is captivating, inquisitive, and provocative." —Room Magazine

"I Can't Get You Out of My Mind is a grandly ambitious, genre-bending examination of the ambiguities and permutations that underlie our experience of love and the ways it affects us." —Quill and Quire
